Recent work in London is showcased in this issue, guest-edited by Yasuhiro Teramatsu. The city’s 21st-century role as a centre of architectural activity is profiled across a diverse range of projects and scales, set alongside buildings from the 19th century through the modern period. From renewal and urban expression, to style and ornament, the dialogue about London’s essential nature is investigated in work by Tony Fretton, Anish Kapoor, SOM, Foster + Partners, Caruso St John, John Nash, 6a architects, and many more, plus essays by Alan Powers and Christopher Woodward, and comments by Sam Jacob, Adam Caruso, Stephanie Macdonald, and Nathalie Rozencwajg.
